With the #UKCoordinationGroup & #EPlenary about to adopt a resolution on the EU-UK future relationship, here are some elements which would be of great help to integrated supply chains & logistics on both sides of the border @davidmcallister @berndlange @CHansenEU @EP_Trade 1/
1. 1st, a #transport agreement is an absolute must @davidmcallister @berndlange @CHansenEU @KarimaDelli : without an agreement, there is no fallback to allow traffic by road, rail & air freight to continue. Without it, planes won't fly & a very small number of EU & UK vehicles 2/
(trucks & vans) cld ever cross the border relying on a very limited number of ECMT permits (wouldn't even cover 5% of the traffic). The situation is just as serious for the island of Ireland since #transport is not dealt with in the Protocol part of the withdrawal agreement 3/

Es muy probable que Ursula von der Leyen será apoyada mañana por una mayoría neoliberal del Parlamento Europeo, con los votos de EPP-PPE, Renew Europe (con dudas), ECR, ID (extrema derecha) y la mitad de S&D (por ejemplo el @PSOE, ¡Vergüenza!). #PlenoPE…
Como era de esperar, la "Gran Coalición" del Parlamento Europeo (derecha, liberales, socialdemocracia) seguirá existiendo. Así es el PSOE, garante de las políticas de y para las élites.
Hay muchas razones por las que el Parlamento Europeo debería votar contra Ursula von der Leyen para presidir la Comisión Europea: su política económica, su apoyo a la OTAN y la militarización o su falta de ambición en cambio climático. ¿Y en política comercial? #EPlenary #PlenoPE

So our new #MEPs (73 from the UK) are ready to take their seats on July 2nd at the first #EPlenary session.…
Here's a reminder of some of the things they do. 1/…
Far from being unelected bureaucrats, as is sometimes suggested, #MEPs are the only office holders in the EU set-up who are directly elected by the voting-age public. 2/…
MEPs form one branch of the EU legislature, the bit that passes laws. The other branch is the Council of national ministers. 3/ @EUCouncil…

Todos os anos a UE perde cerca 1 bilião de euros através de esquemas de fraude e #evasãofiscal. A Resolução ontem aprovada no #EPlenary contém medidas concretas de combate à evasão e elisão fiscal.
#TaxJustice #TaxEvasion #Whistleblowers
A Resolução apela aos Estados Membros que revoguem de forma célere os regimes de #vistosgold, porque potenciais benefícios destes não compensam os riscos de branqueamento de capitais e evasão fiscal.
A resolução reconhece pela primeira vez 7 Estados Membros como paraísos fiscais: Bélgica, Chipre, Hungria, Irlanda, Luxemburgo, Malta e Holanda.

"Pour les Belges, Flamands, Wallons, Bruxellois tous confondus, être pro-européens ce n’est pas une question de choix, mais une vraie question existentielle. Notre pays, nos terres, ont trop longtemps été le champ de bataille de toute l’Europe." #EPlenary
Tous les grands conflits dans l’histoire Européenne se sont livrés en Belgique. Pour nous, c’est clair, il n’y a qu’un avenir possible : un avenir commun, un destin Européen. Tout le reste, ce n’est que des mensonges, des tricheries, des rêves qui tournent au cauchemar.
Ce n’est pas le chocolat, ni la bière, ni Tintin qui caractérisent notre pays, mais notre amour pour l’Europe, notre passion pour le projet européen! @CharlesMichel #EPlenary
